[Return to Topics]

Yep, finally got enough out of them to eat our first real fried eggs this morning. Had some bacon and orange slices with them. They were SOOOOOOOO good. Much, MUCH better than any store bought egg.

I thought so too, Kelly.
Steve just had his stirrer in his hand and could not resist, I guess.

Well good - now you have to learn how to deal with fresh eggs. First off, the fresher it is - the higher the yoke will stand when cracked into the frying pan. Secondly, a rare few eggs will escape notice when gathering them. Or you'll find a hidden nest. They might be good or not so if you don't want to candle them, at least get used to cracking them into a bowl and whiffing before you ruin a whole recipe. Third, once you start getting too many eggs, shove a carton back in the fridge for a couple weeks so they'll peel when you boil them, otherwise you'll have problems with them and have to soak them in vinegar etc. Different from store-bought that are inadvertently but routinely "aged" by their processors. :)

Now just think how much better "real" fried chicken would taste than storebought!!

LOL! I've spent way too much on those chickens to go and eat them! Wouldn't be cost effective. Rather just have them as pets. :) The eggs are so good. I won't shoot you,this time, ;)

after 10-12 months the egg production will slow. We used to avg just under 1 egg per chicken per day. when egg pdroduction slowed we crock-potted the little buggers and started a new flock

Nope, gonna let them retirein peace and raise a new bunch. By that time we will be moved and I can have as many as I want. :)

Dunno about cost effective, I stopped at the store yesterday to get a chicken for the grill. Eight dollars and change, If I were your neighbor I'd be eyeing them pets of yours reallll close.
